Feria Internacional de Turismo (FIT)

FIT 2014, Argentina's leading tradeshow for the tourism industry, will take place October 25 through 28 at the Buenos Aires La Rural Fair Grounds in Palermo.  This is an excellent opportunity for you to learn about the latest market developments in the region, to evaluate the market potential for your products, and to find and screen potential distributors or business partners.  

Since its inception in 1996, the Feria Internacional de Turismo (FIT - International Tourism Fair) has grown to become the largest and most important tourism fair in Latin America, with more than 92,000 visitors and over 1,500 exhibitors in 2013. This year’s show will feature seminars on the industry tailored to various niche sectors.

Traveling is part of the Argentine lifestyle, and the United Sates is a popular travel destination for both business and pleasure. Based on the most recent figures travel to the U.S. is up 19.2 percent January to November 2012, compared to the same period in 2011. The Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis estimates that Argentines spend $5,000 per person on travel expenses to the U.S. (including airfare generated by U.S. carriers).
